Mock Interview Program

Jan. 20 and 21

Alumni volunteers are needed for the law school’s winter Mock Interview Program. Students meet with alumni for a realistic practice interview to prepare them for the upcoming spring hiring season and Public Service Career Fair. Interviews will be held on campus from 6 to 9 p.m. Alumni select a 2-hour timeframe (6:00-8:00 pm OR 7:00-9:00 pm) to interview and provide feedback to several students.

To volunteer or learn more about this program, please contact the Alumni Services Office at 703-993-9862 or lawalum@gmu.edu. Please provide a short bio—including your primary practice area—as well as your preferred date and time.

This is a great opportunity to reconnect with the law school, while really making a difference for Mason Law students just getting started in their legal careers.


February Virginia Bar Examination Lunches

Feb. 24 - 25
Norfolk Waterside Marriott, Norfolk, Va.

Are you planning to take the February Virginia Bar Exam? Alumni Services will take care of one detail, your lunches during the exam. The law school is providing a complimentary buffet lunch at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott Hotel on both days of the bar exam. To learn more and/or RSVP, contact the Alumni Services Office at 703-993-9862 or lawalum@gmu.edu.


Share Your Story with a First Year Student

Career, Academic and Alumni Services is organizing its annual mentoring program for first-year students. The program provides the opportunity to meet alumni and talk about their careers in a one-on-one setting or, if appropriate, observe a portion of an attorney’s day. Because each participating first-year student is matched with an attorney according to his or her field or employer of interest, we encourage as many of our alumni as possible to volunteer for this program so that we can make appropriate matches. We will be matching students and mentors before the semester break.

All attorney-volunteers and students are encouraged to attend a meet-and-greet breakfast at the law school on January 14, 2015. At the breakfast, you can schedule a convenient date for a future one-on-one meeting. If you are unable to attend the breakfast, you can coordinate another mutually convenient time to meet with the student. To volunteer for this program, register online.

If you have any questions about the program, feel free to contact Dana Fallon, ’99 at 703-993-9862 or Ilissa Belanger at 703-993-8001.
